30 days. >> well, and ken cuccinelli, maybe he doesn't even want to win, reverend al. because, you know, he knows that the shutdown hurt his chances. he knows it was very, very unpopular in virginia. so what does he do? he brings in rand paul and marco rubio who both voted to continue the shutdown. so on the one hand, he made some noises about maybe it wasn't the best way to solve problems, blah, blah, blah. but he brings in heroes of the shutdown. >> but at the same time, cynthia, that he brought in heroes of the shutdown, he tried to have it both ways when ted cruz came into virginia. and the vice president and the democratic candidate that he's opposes terry mcauliffe, they linked ken cuccinelli to ted cruz. just listen. >> someone who wants to govern in what they hope to be a new tradition of ted cruz. you might remember ted cruz just gave us the shutdown terry just talked about. >> could you imagine if ted cruz, ken cuccinelli, and the tea party actually ran the virginia government? >> now, let's not forget, cynthia, just last month cuccinelli shunned ted cruz at even a photog
at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in virginia over the weekend with the answer. >> you've seen on extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they're willing to hijack the economy and the country and grind to a halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. now -- >> the extremists are hijacking the entire party and one year later they haven't learned anything. joining me now are joan walsh and cynthia tucker. thanks for joining me. >> good to be here, reverend. >> joan, the president talked about hijacking the country. a year later, they did not learn anything. >> it's been a lost year for the republican party. and we're really feeling it as we sit and watch what's going on in virginia. they've nominated somebody who is just a total extremist. they're blocking
's the front-runner right now. president didn't waste any time linking ken cuccinelli to the national tea party. >> you've seen an extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, i guarantee you it's not in the rear view mirror of voters in virginia they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> cuccinelli's campaign predicted president obama's visit would energize be republican voters outraged over the obama care rollout exchanges. terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 12 points. >> that's a big gap. >> that's massive. >> we'll see. okay. are we going to go to toronto or should we wait until little center i think we'll do it after the break. you all haven't been that well behaved. >> let's smoke. >> no. let's not. that's bad. >> help me out, willie. >> terry wins this race. christi

. ken cuccinelli, the republican candidate for governor, and since the shutdown he's sinking down 11 points in the polls this summer. but today his big response was to call in tea party senator rand paul who voted for the shutdown. see the pattern? their answer to rejection is to go even farther to the right. how's that for a winning strategy? let's put the fire out with more gas. good luck, republicans. joining me now is congressman john yarmouth, democrat from kentucky, and joan walsh from salon.com. thank you both for being on the show. congressman, after romney lost the election, the gop swore it was rebranding. but now we have ted cruz in iowa continuing with this myth campaign. what's going on here? >> well, reverend, it's amazing. john boehner november 7th after the election last year said we're finished with trying to repeal obama care. that battle's been won. that war's been won. now the republican party is acting like many of the japanese soldiers who kept fighting months and months and months after the japanese had surrendered. the war is over, but they are continuing to b
that the cuccinelli loss was because he was too muted and because of the advisers didn't let ken be ken or does the prevailing view hold that when you hold the center, you are doomed to lose? swing states? the guy who went for a non-tea party strategy is taking a page from george w. bush's playbook trying to prove electability to national republican donors and republicans across the country and hope he ends up on wednesday morning the front runner of the establishment wing for 2016. the campaign is not hiding the message. look at the release called blue jersey. in the overwhelming democratic garden state, no republican candidate has earned higher than 50% of the vote in 28 years. >> for the republican party that lost last year in the presidential election, for the republican party that lost seats in the u.s. senate, for the republican party that has been disspirited for the last number of months, we need to show the republican party in america that we can win again. guess where they will be watching on tuesday night to see if we win. right here in new jersey. they will be watching us. >> christ

the government have been behind ken cuccinelli and it's a failure in a state that should be purple is turning blue. >> who would have thunk it? ter terry mcauliffe, governor of virginia. cuccinelli has been giving mcauliffe a lot of issues. he's actually learned and become a better candidate than anyone thought he would be and he has magic of bill clinton in this case. and that's still there. and hillary clinton campaigned for him as well. helping with the woman's vote as well. >> one of the great challenges for '16, two of the most popular politicians today are bill and hillary clinton. it's something that republicans have to think about strategically. >> her numbers are so high. >> the fact that chris christie will win in new jersey, any larger implications for republican party in that? >> people want change. they want effective implementable change. most of the republican governors are in good shape. it's washington that's a total mess. >> the larger question is whether the republican party will accept one like christie. >> you have to get through the primaries as you know. thank you guys
